Once you are admitted, you can receive your immigration documents via express mail (FEDEX/DHL). You are responsible for this shipping method and will need a credit card to make the payment. You will need to create an account at to receive immigration documents as quickly as 8-10 business days. If you are a student with no credit card, visit your local FEDEX/DHL office, make the payment there, and send us the tracking number. 

Do not pay for shipping unless you are fully admitted to UHV. 

If you do not wish to use the express mail option, please let us know that you wish to receive the immigration documents via regular mail. Regular mail may take between 4-6 weeks to reach your home and may cause U.S. visa delays. During the holiday season, expect that additional delays may cause you to defer your enrollment for the next semester. We strongly recommend that you use the express mail option.
